What is the purpose of the conference?
The PCA Mercy Ministry Conference is designed to:
- Underscore the leadership of deacons in mobilizing congregations to show mercy.
- Equip congregations to minister mercifully to members of the body, strangers and aliens, the oppressed and needy.
- Teach congregations that mercy is a characteristic of covenant community.
- Develop an integrated approach to ministry so mercy permeates the entire church.
Churches should encourage deacons and other leaders to attend and to participate in a variety of workshops, bringing back a wealth of information and resources.
Churches should consider who has a burden or vision for the ministries featured. The Spirit could use their interest, and this conference, to do something new in your church.
